Gatsby turned out all right at the end

from F. Scott Fitzgerald – The Great Gatsby (Chapter I) on Rap Genius

Meaning

As Thomas Flanagan recounts, Fitzgerald, in a letter to a classmate at Princeton, explains Gatsby thusly:

“You are right about Gatsby being blurred and patchy. I never at any one time saw him clear myself—for he started out as one man I knew and then changed into myself—the amalgam was never complete in my mind.”
